DJI Mini 3 Pro FC3582 + 6.7 mm f/1.7 @ 6.72 mm, 1/5000 sec at f/1.7, ISO 110 x 21 Frames

A 180˚ panoramic view with Diamond Lake and it’s walking track off to the right. With this lovely road snaking off into the distance between the mountains

Our luck with the mostly good weather was holding up again

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

DJI Mini 3 Pro FC3582 + 6.7 mm f/1.7 @ 6.72 mm, 1/2000 sec at f/1.7, ISO 100

We drove out to Diamond Lake (which is near Wanaka and to the right of this image) to walk the circuit around the lake (it’s about a 45 minute return walk)

Whilst the others walked right up to the high viewing deck above the lake I wandered to take my own view

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S @ 48 mm, 61 sec at f/11, ISO 64

A little decent colour at sunrise at #thatwanakatree. More peachy with hints of orange and red. Still it was a lovely morning to be out photographing – just on 6AM here

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S @ 57 mm, 83 sec at f/11, ISO 64

More pre-dawn goodness @ #thatwanakatree on the shores of Lake Wanaka

It still looks pretty good even though someone vandalised the tree cutting off that famous low curving branch %#!!

Pre Dawn Wanaka

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 24-120mm f/4 S @ 39 mm, 82 sec at f/11, ISO 200

It’s 5AM and I’ve woken up VERY early to walk down to #thatwanakatree to photograph it

We’ve got some cloud so I’m somewhat hopeful of some colour in sunrise (which will be pretty much directly to the right over the township of Wanaka)

A natural long exposure with a little light painting on the trees and voila for a setting the scene shot
